How Starbucks Gets Away With Charging a Fortune for Cheap Beans

StarbucksMillions of groggy people this morning grubbed up an additional 5¢ to 20¢ for their Starbucks fix. No biggie. Most probably swiped or scanned and didn't even notice it.

But for Starbucks, those nickels and dimes add up–especially since it is paying less for the beans while ringing up higher-priced lattes.

Confederate flag take downThe Confederate flag was lowered from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse on Friday, ending its 54-year presence there and marking a stunning political reversal in a state where many thought the rebel banner would fly indefinitely.
